Sunday Turkey And First Time to Try the AMNPS - Page 5

Hi GIT

I'm not sure what smoker you are using. If you can get it up to 300 or 325 in the last hour / hour and a half your skin should crisp up.  I use an MES but its a 1200 watt unit. While the controller will only go up to 275 the smoker temperature will actually hit about 315.

If you're using an electric smoker that won't get that high then put the bird in the oven for the last hour. No shame in doing that brother!

Pull it off the gate when the breast temp is at 160. Put it in the oven at 350 until the breast temp hits165.  The remaining  5 degrees should give you one hour or so of cooking in the oven.  If it takes longer  and the skin appears that it it browning too much then baste the bird and cover with a foil tent until you hit the 165 breast temp.  Pull the bird out of the oven and let it rest for 30 minutes before carving.
